The Meeting was opened at 2:10 P.M. by Moderator Robert B. 
James and the Town Clerk proceeded to read the caU of the meeting.

COMMITTEE TO CONSOLIDATE THE BEECHWOOD AND 
NORTH COHASSET FIRE STATIONS 

As Chairman of the Committee I would like to make the following 
report. This Committee has had a difficult time in getting the various 
members together in sufficient numbers to conduct fruitful meetings. In 
as much as the problems of poorly located and inadequate structures 
still exists the need for this committee is still very real. 

The membership of the Committee should be questioned by the 
Board of Selectmen as to their interest in continuing as members and 
new appointments made where necessary. 

Keeping in mind the scope of the problem of relocating and possibly 
consolidating it is hoped that this report will be accepted as one of 
progress and that the Committee be continued. 

VOTED that the committee's report of progress be accepted and 
the Committee be continued.

ADDRESS TO TOWN MEETING BY CHIEF HECTOR J. PELLETIER 

Mr. Moderator, Ladies and Gentlemen. 

Only one who has been privileged to serve the people of Cohasset 
as a Law Enforcement Officer during the past forty years can appreciate 
the solemn pride which I naturally feel at being given the opportunity to 
address the members of this Town Meeting during the gravest hours law 
enforcement has ever known. 

Only those charged with the responsibility of security for all you good 
citizens can fully appreciate the bonds of friendship existing between the 
men of the Cohasset Police Department and all of you. 

My respect and admiration for you includes, of course the gallant 
men you have given to me to serve you and their families, who are pain- 
fully aware that every man who wears a badge is a potential martyr. 

If my office has been at all successful, it is to you and the men of 
this department, to whom I owe a debt of gratitude, which I can never 
repay. 

It is the job of the police to give life and meaning to the promise 
that everyone is entitled to enjoyment of Civil Liberties. In this context, 
the existence and performance of the Police becomes of vital concern to 
every citizen. It is the members of your police department whom we must 
all rely for the immediate and effective protection of constitutional guar- 
antees. The degree of that protection will depend upon the ability of the 
members of the Cohasset Police Department to repress the criminal. 
Therefore the efficiency and effectiveness of your Police Department 
should be of most serious concern to all. 

The United States Supreme Court has made certain decisions that 
have changed the work of a Police Officer in the entire country. The cases 
involved are Number 1. Gideon - Wainwright — 2. The Miranda - Arizona 
case — 3. The Escobedo - Illinois case and finally the Westover and the 
Mapp V - Ohio cases. The average police officer has an average educa- 
tion, usually a High School Diploma and none have a - LEGAL - back- 
ground. We are told by the Great Director of the Federal Bureau of In- 
vestigation, Mr. J. Edgar Hoover of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, 
United States Attorneys, District Attorneys and many College Professors 
that the time has come for our citizens to realize that every community 
in this great Commonwealth will have to furnish new tools for all Police 
Departments and that some of these tools are to require - EDUCATION - 
TRAINING - and a salary that will keep these men interested in Police 
Work.

Police Officers today have to make decisions in split seconds at 3:30 
in the morning or 3:30 in the afternoon that can be reversed in three years 
by the five wise men in the United States Supreme Court, which may 
result in the officer being sued civilly and if verdict is not in his favor 
may result in the loss of his home. 

The Fourth Amendment of our Constitution provides that the rights 
of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects, 
against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated. To that 
end I have always made this my first endeavor as a Chief of Police to 
protect your constitutional rights. "LIFE, LIBERTY AND THE PUR- 
SUIT OF HAPPINESS", AS GUARANTEED BY THE FEDERAL 
CONSTITUTION. 

My one ambition through life has been to help a boy or girl receive 
a High School Diploma rather than a Court record that would hinder 
his ambitions through life. 

Now Ladies and Gentlemen, there is no doubt that this is the last 
time that I will be honored with the privilege of addressing you as your 
Chief of Police. To Sergeants Thomas B. Kane and Randolph A. Feola 
and every Police Officer who has served the Town with me during all of 
these years, I am most grateful for their loyalty and sincerely hope that 
they will always recognize the badge of their office as a symbol of Public 
Faith and will accept it as a public trust to be held so long as they are 
true to the ethics of police service. 

My greatest accomplishment during all of these years is the fact I 
never have suspended a Police Officer. 

I never had a man put up on charges — 

I never had a man discharged. 

To all of you who have helped me raise over one million dollars to 
help children afflicted with cancer I am most appreciative. 

To the Board of Selectmen, Mr. George W. McLaughlin and Mrs. 
Helen E. Scripture and all department heads, I am most grateful for the 
splendid cooperation and help you all have given to me. Mr. Daniel 
Cotton and the Members of the Advisory Board have been most 
helpful, Mr. Herbert Towle, Chairman of the Personnel Board and its 
members, I am most grateful for their cooperation. 

Mr. Malcolm H. Stevens, Our Town Accountant who has done so 
much to help all department Heads, I am most grateful. To each and every 
one of you here today and your loved ones, may I say - I know you have 
heard of the words, "THANK YOU" before, - BUT - Please believe me 
when I say they have never been used more sincerely.

ted the subject matter of these amendments to the zoning code, to the

itable organizations from the requirements of these amendments, the last 
sentence of each of these articles, as now presented in the warrant, was

firmative action by this Town Meeting.

On June 26, 1967 I was appointed Chief of Police for the 
Town of Cohasset. Since taking over as the head of the Police Depart- 
ment I have had the assistance and cooperation of officials and depart- 
ment heads of the town. I want to give my sincere thanks to all who have 
helped. 

In the Police Department budget for 1968 I have asked for a few 
items that I think will help to bring the department in line with present 
day police work. We have a 1965 Ford and a 1966 Chevrolet for patrol 
cars. Both of these cars have been used extensively and are becoming 
very expensive pieces of equipment due to necessity of frequent repairs. 
I have recommended that both of these vehicles be turned in for new 
vehicles. 

In closing I wish to thank the citizens of Cohasset for the many 
kindnesses shown in the past year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

RANDOLPH A. FEOLA 
Chief of Police 
Cohasset, Massachusetts

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF SELECTMEN 

With the completion of the Aaron River project during the summer, 
the Selectmen completed the responsibilities entrusted to them by the 
votes of the last three town meetings. 

The harbor dredging project, which has been one of the topics dealt 
with in this report since 1962 was finally commenced in the late spring. 
Due to various factors of weather, equipment suitability, breakdowns, and 
perhaps other reasons, the project had not been completed at the close 
of the year, although by far the greater portion has been done. 

The Board with the Harbor Master has under consideration the sub- 
ject of mooring permits and will present an article in this regard to the 
1968 Town Meeting. 

We also have been considering new Shellfish Regulations. In this 
connection during the year, acting on the advice of the Massachusetts 
Department of Natural Resources and the recommendation of the Cohasset 
Conservation Commission, the Board issued three commercial clam digging 
permits. We have, and will continue to study this activity, and will wel- 
come the comments of interested townspeople. 

The Committees which were appointed under Article 35 (Water 
Supply) and Article 46 ("Baby Hoover") of the 1967 Town Meeting 
have pursued their subjects actively during the year and have submitted 
reports indicating substantial coverage of the matter given in their charee. 
The Selectmen appointed a committee to study prospective use of the 
Government Island real estate which has also applied itself to its task 
as shown by its report. We recommend careful study of these reports as 
well as expected future reports in these areas which are rightly of great 
concern to all of us who care about the future of our town. 

We feel it appropriate to record here our grateful appreciation not 
alone to the members of these and other committees but also to our fine 
group of loyal town employees and department heads whose tireless ef- 
forts keep the town functioning effectively. 

Respectfully submitted, 

GEORGE W. McLAUCmiN, Chairman

REPORT OF THE COHASSET CONSERVATION COMMISSION 1967 

The Conservation Commission has worked closely with the Water 
Commissions this year to insure that Cohasset will have an adequate 
water supply in the future. The Conservation Commission purchased two 
parcels of land bordering Aaron River which if developed could threaten 
valuable watershed land. Application to the Department of Natural Re- 
sources has been made for matching funds to share the cost of the pur- 
chase. The Commission was also instrumental in the formation of a 
committee to study what additional land along Aaron River should be 
acquired or controlled for the future protection of the watershed. 

A conservation easement was given the town by Mrs. Theodore 
Little which in effect assures the preservation in its natural state all the 
magnificent coastline owned by her east of Atlantic Avenue and a gen- 
erous strip of marsh and upland on the opposite side of Atlantic Avenue. 
During the year a major effort was made by many interested citizens, 
including children, to clear debris from and landcape portions of Ellms 
Meadows. Work will continue in 1968. More participation would be wel- 
come from those living in the neighborhood. 

The Conservation Commission encouraged and assisted in the forma- 
tion of the Cohasset Conservation Trust, a private conservation group 
whose aims and purpose closely parallel those of the Commission. We 
expect to work closely with this group and wish them success in the 
coming year.

REPORT OF THE GOVERNMENT ISLAND COMMITTEE 

As Chairman of the Committee appointed by the Selectmen, in ac- 
cordance with the recommendations submitted as part of the report of 
the Advisory Committee for the 1967 Town Meeting to investigate the 
potential of the Government Island property, I wish to present the follow- 
ing report: 

The Committee consists of Mrs. Earl R. McArthur, Jr., Mr. A. 
Frederick Petersen, Mr. Prescott T. Cumner, Mr. Edward Figuieredo, 
Mr. Richard Tousley and Mr. Gerard J. Stanton. At the fkst meetmg 
held July 23, 1967, Mr. Stanton was elected chairman and Mrs. McArthur 
was elected secretary. 

During the course of the summer and fall, several meetings were held 
on the site and the area and the buildings were carefully inspected. The 

66 



property, which is approximately seven acres, may be divided into two 
parts: — the first being the waterfront area consisting of the wharf, the 
historic site of the Minot's Light construction, and the Sailing Club; the 
balance of the property consisting of the high rock and the surrounding 
woodlands. 

This committee recognizes that this area, because of its strategic 
location, has a tremendous potential and is one of the most valuable 
pieces of property owned by the Town, and certainly should be preserved 
for park purposes. 

The Committee at this time recommends: 

1. that the total area of the property be retained by the Town for 
the benefit of the citizens of Cohasset. 

2. that, in order to eliminate a non-productive real estate holding 
and to provide proper access to the site, the Selectmen, in keeping with 
the interests of the Town, arrange for the sale by auction or other means, 
and the removal from the property of the two family house situated near 
the entrance. Upon removal, the committee recommends that the cellar 
hole be backfilled to existing grade. 

3. that the small bam type building be turned over to the Harbor 
Master for a gear storage building, office and center of operations for the 
Harbor Master's department. 

4. that these studies be continued in an attempt to realize gradually 
the true potential of the property particularly in view of the addition of 
approximately twelve acres of mooring area in the harbor which will ne- 
cessitate improving the facilities at the pier for the use of boat owners and 
the fishermen. 

5. that protection be provided for the historic site of the Minot's 
Light Construction by barriers of a suitable nature. 

6. that the Committee be kept in existence and its membership en- 
larged to include the Harbor Master. 

This report would not be complete unless mention was made of the 
great work completed recently by the Historical Society in restoration 
of the template foundations used in the erection of Minot's Light, and 
also contributions made to the area for recreation purposes by the Sail- 
ing Club and its members. All the work accomplished by these two 
groups has been at no cost to the Town or taxpayers. 

We wish to thank the following interested citizens and officials of 
the Town for their technical help and assistance: 

Mr. Howard Bates, Tree Warden 

Mr. Louis A. Laugelli, Registered Appraiser 

Mr. James Rosano, Landscape Consultant. 

Respectfully submitted, 
GERARD J. STANTON

REPORT OF SOCIAL SERVICE LEAGUE 

The staff of the Social Service League of Cohasset provided the fol- 
lowing Nursing and Physiotherapy services from January 1, 1967 through 
December 31, 1967 on orders from the attending physician and approval 
by the Welfare Department: 

Cases 
Nursing Service Visits Served 

Medicaid 65 3 *2 

M. A. (Medicare B) 364 10 



429 13 

As can be seen by the statistics the majority of cases served and 
visits made were to patients who were eligible for Medicare B. This meant 
that after meeting the $50.00 deductible only 20% of the costs had to be 
met. The two asterisk cases served under Medicaid were patients who had 
exhausted their 100 Home Health Visits under Medicare B. 

In addition the following Physiotherapy was provided: 

Durect 
Physiotherapy Service Visits Service 

Medicaid 28 4 

Medicaid (Med. B) 29 2 

Three of the four Medicaid patients receiving Physiotherapy were 
children. 

As always I am grateful for the spirit of co-operation and mutual 
respect which exists between our organization and the Welfare Depart- 
ment, as together we work to achieve our common goal — meeting the 
needs of the community. 

Caseworker's Report 

5 cases carried by the Welfare Department have also been known to 
Mrs. Wright, Caseworker. Two are still being followed intensively. We 
are very grateful to both Mrs. Oliver and Miss Holub for their ever ready 
co-operation, not only on the aforementioned 5 cases, but for help with 
several other emergency situations as they arose. 

Respectfully submitted, 
MYRTLE E. MEDEIROS, R.N.

PLANNING BOARD 
TOWN OF COHASSET 

Over the past year the Town has continued its growth at a some- 
what slower rate than in the past three or four years. However this 
slackening in the growth rate is not due to any illness of the municipality 
but rather can be attributed to the tight money market for the most part. 
Since the Town is primarily and predominantly residential, the growth of 
the Town will be governed by the availability of money for home con- 
struction. 

The Board is about to commence a survey of the various depart- 
ments and boards of the Town in preparation of the publication of the 
second Ten Year Program for the Town.

OFFICE OF WIRE DEPARTMENT 

New Overhead Fire Alarm wires were installed where needed. 

Replacement of old cross arms and hardware were made through- 
out the Town where needed. Many new poles have been installed by 
Brockton Edison Company in preparation of new overhead construction 
with numerous changes in Fire Alarm construction. 

Fire Alarm boxes were tested and cleaned. 

Due to the new additions of the High School much time is involved 
by this department in wiring changes of Fire Alarm and other wiring 
systems. 

Repairs and new installations in town owned buildings were done by 
this department. 

Electrical inspections were made by this department and permits 
and fees turned over to the Town Accountant and Town Treasurer. 

I wish to express my thanks to the Honorable Board of Selectmen, 
all Town Officials and to the men who worked with me. 

Respectfully yours, 

EDWARD P. MALLEY 
Superintendent of Wires

ANNUAL REPORT OF RECREATION COMMISSION 

The death on Januar}^ 4, 1968 of M. J. "Hot" Sullivan our Super- 
intendent was a deep loss to the townspeople and particularly to those of 
us who were privileged to work closely with him. He gave freely of his 
time so that we all could enjoy the fruits of his labor. We will all sorely 
miss him. 

550 feet of chain link fence with 2 gates has been installed at Miliken 
Field. Work has started on a parking lot and will be continued this year. 
Work has been started on the Beechwood baseball diamond and will be 
completed this year. We also purpose to fence in the Doane Street side 
of the field as a precaution against children being injured chasing a ball 
into the street. 

A summer recreation program was conducted at the Hull Street play 
ground mutually sponsored by the towns of Hingham and Cohasset. A 
trial summer program was held at Beechwood Park, MUliken Field and 
Harold Barnes Field on Friday afternoons and was well attended. This 
trial program was conducted by Mr. John Bosse of the Cohasset Com- 
munity Center free of charge to the town. As a result of the success of 
this program we are inserting an article in the town warrant for a full 
10 week summer program for children ages 4 through 12, 5 days a week. 

At this time we wish to express our appreciation to Superintendent 
of Wires, Parker Malley, Highway Surveyor, Louis C. Bailey Jr. and 
his Foreman, Kenneth Souther, the board of directors and officers of the 
Community Center for their help with the summer program trial and the 
Selectmen for their cooperation in our past endeavors. 

The Recreation Commission will continue to work for better Recrea- 
tion Programs and improvements in Park maintenance and supervision.

Interim Report of the Committee to Survey the Admmistrative 

Functioning of Various Town Offices, Boards and Departments 

set up under Article 46 of March 4, 1967. 

The Committee has progressed substantially since its inception and 
is submitting an interim report and one article and one resolution for 
consideration of the 1968 Town Meeting. More suggestions and rec- 
ommendations will follow as the Committee continues its work during 
1968. Thus, it requests that it be continued to complete its work during 
this next year. 

70 



After its organizational meeting on May 11, 1967, the Committee 
began its work without predetermined views of changes in organizational 
structure or procedures of the town government. 

During the year it met as a committee of the whole at the Town Hall 
with the Board of Selectmen, Board of Health, Planning Board, representa- 
tives of the League of Women Voters, past chairmen and members of 
Cohasset Advisory Committees, and interested citizens. Sub-committees 
examined operations and procedures of many town offices and depart- 
ments. 

Cohasset citizens were offered opportunities to meet with the Com- 
mittee. In fact, specific invitations were sent to some dozen citizens whom 
the Committee felt had exhibited interest in town affairs over the years. 
It is discouraging to report that few citizens responded. It is hoped that 
more will meet with the Committee during 1968 to make constructive 
suggestions about the administrative functioning of the town government. 

Throughout its 1967 deliberations, the Committee heard about and 
was convinced of the changing conditions affecting the town government — 
the separation of the assessing function and welfare responsibility from 
those who also serve as the selectmen, the growing density of popula- 
tion, the new methods of doing business. Therefore, the Committee be- 
lives that Cohasset must m.ove toward a modification of its present part- 
time, decentralized form of town government. It believes that there is a 
need for increased coordination of and increased communication among 
departments and that citizens need a more direct access to all branches 
of local government. 

The Committee has reviewed several suggestions for basic change. 
It feels strongly that the executive secretary form of government is most 
advantageous for the future of Cohasset. It believes that the executive 
secretary is a rational approach, a necessary one, and one that preserves 
rather than destroys traditions, and preserves the board of selectmen as 
the political, policy-making, and administrative head of the government. 
Therefore, the Committee has inserted an article in the town warrant, 
asking for the Town to accept the enabling statute empowering the Select- 
men to appoint an Executive Secretary. 

Assuming acceptance of the article by the Town Meeting, the Com- 
mittee will work with the Selectmen and will present specific recommenda- 
tions for ways and means of economical implementation in 1969. 

The second part of our interim report deals with capital planning 
and programming. The Planning Board has the legal responsibility for 
developing plans for the physical development of the town and for the 
program to put the plans into effect. The Conmiittee finds that this re- 
sponsibility has been exercised only on an intcrniittont basis, primarily 
because the Planning Board has been almost continually engaged in the 
detail of subdivision control. 

Our resolution calls upon the Planning Board to exercise its most 
important responsibility of capital planning and programming on a regu- 

71 



lar continuing basis. We do not suggest another one time Benjamin Re- 
port, but rather continual planning and an annual up-dated capital pro- 
gram that the town can consider. 

It should be possible to program public improvements for our town 
over a period of several years. Some feasible method — a capital pro- 
gram — must get them into some kind of orderly relationship to each 
other and to the community's current budget and financial outlook. 

An annual capital program will help to assure the proper upkeep of 
existing municipal facilities and protect the town's large investment in 
plant and facilities. It will help to make room for whatever necessary 
expansion there may be; and it will help to maintain a proper balance 
between available resources and financial commitments. 

Finally, the Committee reports thats in its work, it is considering the 
advantages and disadvantages of possible consolidation of certain town 
offices, an overall public works department, centralized purchasing, 
handling of town property, maintenance of town vehicles, and several 
other organizational and procedural changes. In addition, the Committee 
intends to continue and expand its study of the detailed procedures and 
operations of all of the existing departments and divisions of the town 
government.

REPORT OF THE LIBRARIAN 
PAUL PRATT MEMORIAL LIBRARY 

By far the most important event affecting our Library this past year 
has been the implementation of the Eastern Regional Library System. 
The new system is a cooperative one. Local control of community libraries 
will be preserved, and the patron will continue to use his own library as 
the first source of materials and services. However, the library will have 
access to the collections of the next highest unit, the subregional center, 
in this instance the Thomas Crane Public Library in Quincy. The Boston 
Public Library is the ultimate source of information and material — books, 
films, copying of material which cannot leave the regional center library, 
booklists on various subjects compiled by Boston Public Library staff 
specialists. Non-resident borrowers cards are available free for the Bos- 
ton Public Library to any resident of the Eastern Region. A Regional 
administrator has been appointed — William Runkel, former Newton 
Librarian. ^^^^ 

Another important event has been the gift of his entire music library 
by Mr. Donald Gammons, a long time Director of the Paul Pratt Mem- 
ori2il Library. These books will be catalogued and shelved in their en- 
tirety in a special place in the Library and made available to the public. 
This collection is unique and will add a great deal to the prestige of our 
Library while providing a source of information and enjoyment to all 
lovers of music. 

In the first part of my report I mentioned the fact that we would 
be able to borrow films from the Boston Public Library. We will be able 
to take advantage of this privilege with the acquisition of a film projector. 
The projector has been purchased with the money given to the Library 
in loving memory of Martha Whitley. We anticipate that the use of this 
projector will widen our service to adults and children. 

We were sorry to lose Mr. James Sullivan who has been with us 
since the beginning of our evening openings but glad to see him stay in 
the Library profession. He is now Head Librarian of the pubh'c library 
in Barre, Mass. Mrs. Dorothy Stenz, B.S., long a part time worker in the 
Library, is now in charge of the evening openings. 

Statistics for the year are as follows: 

New registrations 484 

Registrations withdrawn 450 

Number of books added 1,747 

Number of books withdrawn 242 

Total volumes in Library 33,331 

Adult circulation (est.) 52,288 

Juvenile circulation (est.) 31,160 

73 



I would like to express my appreciation to the members of the staff 
for their wholehearted co-operation, to the Directors and Trustees for 
their help and guidance, to the South Shore Art Center for the splendid 
exhibits we have, and to all those who have given books, flowers, etc. 
to the library. 

Respectfully submitted,

REPORT OF THE COHASSET 
PUBLIC SEWERAGE STUDY COMMITTEE 

The Study Committee reports the following developments in 1967: 

1. At the Town Meeting, March 4, 1967, the town voted for the 
construction of a treatment plant in Jacobs Meadow capable of 
serving the High School, Pond Street, all other schools, and the 
center of town. 

2. The town also voted to establish a board of sewer commissioners 
with powers to construct and maintain all sewerage facilities of 
the town. The Study Committee has turned over all pertinent in- 
formation to the Sewer Commissioners. 

3. This Committee suggests that it be continued and its member- 
ship revised to include better representation throughout the town. 

This Committee wishes to thank all interested citizens for their 
cooperation.

REPORT OF 
BOARD OF WATER COMMISSIONERS 

During the past year the department has carried out its policy of 
continued improvement of the system. Projects authorized by the Town 
last March have been completed as follows: 

1. Installed 450' of 6" main and one hydrant on Parker Avenue. 

2. Installed 750' of 6" main on Stockbridge Street and connected 
to Margin Street, thus completing a loop. 

3. Installed 1050' of 12" main on Gushing Highway from Beech- 
wood Street to Schofield Road and 2400' of 12" main from just 
North of Sohier Street to lower King Street. This completes a 
loop from Beechwood Street to North Main Street. Four addi- 
tional hydrants were also provided. 

4. Installed 700' of 10" main with one hydrant on Mill Lane. 

5. Installed 400' of 6' high chain link fencing around the standpipe 
on Bear Hill. 

The completion of the above main loop installations not only im- 
proved service in the areas involved, but increased the efficiency of the 
overall system from a distribution and fire protection standpoint. These 
pipe line installations, along with mains provided by private developers, 
added nearly 1¥^ miles of water mains to the system this year. 

Thirty new services were connected and fourteen services were re- 
newed during the year, making a total of 1684 residential and 80 business 
consumers. 

A record volume of 203,451,300 gallons of water was treated and 
distributed showing an increase of 27,415,500 gallons over 1966. 

A program of semi-annual flushing of mains was introduced and 
has proven to be of great value in minimizing discoloration of the water 
in the distribution system. 

An engineering report outlining means for augmenting the Town's 
water supply was completed during the year. The conclusions reached 
by the authors of the rather comprehensive report were essentially as 
follows: 

1. A suitable supply of underground water does not exist in the 
Town. 

2. The most practical means for obtaining a sufficient surface 
supply is to first, erect a dam across Aaron River at the end of 
Beechwood Street, in conjunction with a smaller control struc- 
ture across Bound Brook also at Beechwood Street. Secondly, 
construct a new treatment plant and pumping station with an 
initial capacity of IVi million gallons per day, on Water De- 
partment property at Lily Pond on King Street. 

The dam across Aaron River will create a secondary reservoir of 
approximately 115 acres in the vicinity of the proposed state park. A 

77 



control structure across Bound Brook will raise the level of Lily Pond by 
four feet thus adding to the capacity of our primary reservoir. These, 
along with a suitable treatment and pumping plant should fulfill the 
needs of the Town for the next fifty years. 

Your Commissioners will study the report and make their recom- 
mendations to the Town at a later date. 

We wish to thank the personnel of the Department for their untiring 
effort and also the various Town Officials, Department Heads and Com- 
mittees for their cooperation during the year.

REPORT OF THE 
BOARD OF SEWER COMMISSIONERS 

In late June of this year, planning documents were turned over to 
the Sewer Commissioners by the Sewerage System Study Committee and 
the long discussed Cohasset Sewer Department became a reality. The 
Commissioners were delegated the responsibility for constructing a sys- 
tem to immediately serve the newly enlarged High School with provisions 
for expanded services in the future. 

The program has proceeded on schedule with progress to date as 
follows: 

1. Design of the treatment plant and sewer mains have been 
completed. 

2. The system has been approved under the Hatch Act relative to 
filling of marshlands. 

3. Applications have been filed for state and federal approval for 
respective matching funds. 

4. Land taking for the treatment plant and easements for the mains, 
have been appraised and are being negotiated with the owners. 

As soon as the necessary approvals have been obtained, the system 
will be ready to go out for bids. It is our present uitention to commence 
construction during March 1968. 

The Conmiissioners would like to take this opportunity to thank the 
various Town Officials and citizens for their cooperation and assistance 
during the past year.

fflGHWAY DEPARTMENT 

Submitted herewith is the report of the Highway Surveyor for the 
year ending December 31, 1967. 

The men of the Highway Department worked on street drainage 
during the winter months. This has been the policy over the past years. 
As a result of this work, eighty percent of the streets in Town have stand- 
ard catch basins and pipe large enough to handle street water. The re- 
maining streets and trouble spots will be the projects in the near future. 

This year the Department installed 24 Standard Catch Basins and 
laid 2000' of 10" and 12" pipe. Two and one half miles of Mix in Place 
was laid on various streets. Tliis work will continue. 

In a period of twelve years, the Department has installed three hun- 
dred seventeen catch basins, laid 30,932' of pipe and resurfaced thirty 
one miles of road. 

Chapter 90 maintenance funds were used on North Main Street to 
install 4000' of Bituminous Asphalt. The department has requested 
Chapter 90 Construction and Maintenance Funds for 1968. The Con- 
struction funds will be applied to Elm Street as approved by the State 
Department of Public Works. The Maintenance money will be used on 
Streets approved by the State for such aid. 

The Tovm wfll receive $15,363.52 which has been made available 
by the Legislature from the proceeds of the Bond Issue, Chapter 616 of 
the Acts of 1967. This money when received, can be used on projects 
approved by the State. 

All the articles assigned to the Department were completed. 

In closing, I thank the Citizens of Cohasset, Town Officials and 
the six men of the Highway Department. 

Respectfully submitted, 
LOUIS C. BAILEY, JR.

REPORT OF TREE WARDEN 

Most of our trees are in reasonably good condition at this time. 
Several dead or dangerous trees were cut during the year. Eight suitable 
new trees were planted in various locations where they can be expected 
to grow. The trees on the Common were fertilized and sufficient rainfall 
kept aU trees in good condition. Two trees on the Common were destroyed 
by vandalism. Roadside brush was cleared, especially on Atlantic Ave. 
and grass on roadsides was mowed to improve vision and keep our road- 
sides presentable. 

With thanks to all officials and citizens who by their calls and com- 
ments have assisted me in my work.

SOUTH SHORE MOSQUITO CONTROL PROJECT 

Submitted herewith is the report of the South Shore Mosquito Con- 
trol Project's activities in the Town of Cohasset for the year ending 
October 31, 1967. 

The Town of Cohasset appropriated $4700 for mosquito control in 
1967. Along with this $800 was appropriated for maintenance of ditches 
on coastal salt marsh. Both appropriations were expended by the South 
Shore Mosquito Control Project in effort toward a better control of mos- 
quitoes in the Town of Cohasset. 

The South Shore Mosquito Control Project, authorized and acts 
under provisions of Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 252, Section 
59, mosquito control provisions and Chapter 112, Acts of 1931, pertain- 
ing to ditch maintenance of the salt marsh. The project is a year round 
cooperative effort embracing the City of Quincy and Towns of Braintree, 
Cohasset, Duxbury, Hingham, Hull, Marshfield, Non^'cll, Scituate and 
Weymouth, covering a total area of 172.21 square miles, serving a popula- 
tion in excess of 223,000. 

The Project continued to base its operation on a three-phase mos- 
quito reduction program, giving priority in this order: 

1. Source reduction, by proper ditch maintenance and water 
manipulation the mosquito's breeding areas are eliminated. 

2. Reduction at the source, with small amounts of insecticides ap- 
plied at a breeding source properly timed could destroy mosquito larvae 
and pupae by the millions. 

3. Adult Control, the reduction of the adult or flying mosquito by 
means of space spraying or thermal fogging. 

With this as the basic plan for mosquito control the following was 
accomplished in the Town of Cohasset this past year. 

Source Reduction 

3575 feet of drainage ditches were reclaimed. All this to prevent 
water from becoming stagnant enough to produce mosquitoes. 

50 feet of brushing was necessary to allow access to ditch or spray. 

Reduction at the Source 

975 acres of small isolated woodland swamps were prehatch treated 
with insecticidal dust upon the ice during the winter months by bellows 
pack duster to prevent mosquito eggs and larvae from developing. 

825 acres of larger swamp areas were aerial sprayed by helicopter 
type aircraft to prevent the development of the early spring mosquito 
larvae. 

Throughout the summer season many wet areas such as salt maish, 
quarries, rock pools, temporary woodland pools, roadside wet areas, 
storm drainage catchbasins, etc. have to be checked continually and 
wherever mosquitoes are contained they must be treated. 328 gallons of 
insecticides were applied for this larval control, usually at rates of one 
gallon to the acre. 

81 



The Culex mosquito, or "House Mosquito", is one of the Project's 
troublesome mosquitoes because of its ability to breed quite rapidly and 
in any size container of standing water, also its pesty habit of seeking 
the inside of buildings ior biting and shelter. Catchbasins are, in most 
towns, the greatest source of these mosquitoes. This is the reason we must 
continually check and spray basins during the summer months. 505 
basins were sprayed in the Town this year. 

Adult Reduction 

Control for the adult mosquito becomes necessary when large num- 
bers emerge and move into residential communities, usually migrating 
from uncontrollable areas. Space spraying or thermal fogging are methods 
by which mosquitoes are knocked down in flight, or at their resting sites. 
This Project becomes more involved in this method of control each year 
as request calls continue to increase to one thousand plus annually. 
Many are legitimate calls for a general area treatment, but the calls for 
personalized backyard spray are on the increase. The Project cannot give 
this kind of service for it is a community control project, not an eradica- 
tion program. 

419 gallons of insecticide were space sprayed and fogged for adult 
mosquitoes in the Town this year, by mist blower, hydraulic sprayers 
or thermal fogger. 

The insecticides used by this Project in its mosquito control pro- 
gram are: 

Abate 4 

Fenthion Baytex 
D.D.T. Dust 
D.D.T. Emulsion 
Nailed DiBrom 
#2 Oil 

These insecticides are all registered and labelled for use in mos- 
quito control operations. When formulated and applied in accord with 
and at no greater amounts than their labels recommend to be proper 
for mosquito operations they pose no hazard. 

Th^s PTJect ^'s continum? to phase out the use of the persistent 
chlorinated hydrocarbon insecticides such as D.D.T. To replace these are 
many newer insecticides coming into use each year ,some specifically 
for mosquito control and all, indeed, good to their limitation, but at pres- 
ent remain more costly than the older insecticides. 

These changes from persistent insecticides must be made for as it 
is the duty of this Project to make its communities as free of mosquitoes 
as possible it is also duty bound to operate in such a way as never to be 
a hazard to its persons, wildlife or their environment. 

The Project wishes to acknowledge the help received from officials 
and departments of the town and sincerely hopes that benefits derived 
by these departments as a result of this cooperation are as great as those 
derived by the Project.

As proposed in the budget for 1967, Ladder 1 a 1947 Pirsch, was 
given a complete engine overhaul. This is the first work of a major nature 
performed on this truck in 20 years of service, and will result in continued 
service for several more years. During this year all of the ladders on this 
truck were stripped, sanded and refinished which will prolong their life. 

The water tank on the Forest truck sprung a leak and required re- 
placement, this was done. 

Routine maintenance and lubrication was performed by the fire^ 



84 



fighters on duty, this includes engine tunc-ups. Replacement of parts and 
batteries were made as needed. A new set of tires W2is installed on Engine 
1 and the old thes turned in for discount. 

STATIONS AND EQUIPMENT 

In the year 1967, as in preceding years, all of the hose of the de- 
partment was tested at 250 psi, washed, inspected and dried. Replace- 
ments of hose which is no longer reliable for fire service were made. This 
is a continuous proceess . . . fire hose is peculiar in that it is made to 
transport water and water is its greatest enemy. So after use each and 
every length used has to be washed and thoroughly dried to get maximum 
life from it. The purchase of quality hose is as essential as the care it 
receives and the combination of the two result in prolonged service life. 

The many different types of tools and appliances of the department 
were inspected and maintained by the on duty firefighters on a regularly 
scheduled basis. Repairs to these many items were made as required. 

Four additional self contained breathing masks were placed in service. 
They carry their own air supply and give the firefighter protection against 
the toxic gases and smokes that are encountered in todays type of fire. 
The widespread use of plastics and synthetics has created this problem. 
The addition of these masks was made under the Capital Outlay program, 
under this same program three more masks are requested this year . . . this 
will complete the program of up dating the breathing apparatus for the 
present, if granted. 

The old buildings, which serve as sub stations at Beechwood and 
North Cohasset, have outlived their usefulness ... the quarters are 
cramped, the garage or apparatus space is barely adequate, they are 
poorly located, the result of which is the inability to gain full and com- 
plete use of the men and equipment quartered there. 

The sub station at Beechwood which was closed, at the first of this 
year, due to an extreme shortage of manpower was re-opened in mid 
June and is currently open. This was made possible by the addition of 
two permanent firefighters to the force. These men were authorized at 
the 1967 Annual Town Meeting of March 4. 

PERSONNEL 

The personnel and organization of the Fire Department is as follows. 
All of the Officers and Men of the Department are under Civil Service 
and promotion to all grades is by competitive examination.

The permanent firefighters and officers of the department work a 
56 hour week schedule which results in their being divided into three 
platoons or groups each commanded by an officer. Each group is then 
divided again and assigned to the various stations. The addition of the 
two permanent firefighters in 1967 provides an equal number of men 
on each group which results in greater efficiency and smoother operation. 



CALL FIREFIGHTING PERSONNEL 

Perhaps a definition of what a Call Firefighter is, and what his job 
is ... is in order at this time. Upon the sounding of an alarm the Call 
Firefighter leaves his home or work and responds to the scene of the 
fire . . . this call can come at any time of the day or night and under 
any kind of weather conditions. His job is to supplement the regular fire^ 
fighting force. The rate of compensation is not great but the risks involved 
are . . . their dedication to duty is to be commended. For this reason they 
deserve the thanks and appreciation of their fellow townspeople. 

These Call Firefighters are assigned as follows:

TRAINING 

The three new firefighters were given a six weeks training course 
prior to assignment which included some of the following subjects . . . 
driver training, pump operations, ladder operations, hose and ladder 
evolutions, protective breathing apparatus, first aid, extinguishers and 
forcible entry and ventilation. 

These same men and two call firefighters attended in June the two 
day training school at West Bridgewater, given by the Mass. Institute of 
Fire Department Instructors and sponsored by the Plymouth County Fire 
Chief Association. The training for these two days included inhalation 
and resuscitation and breathing apparatus. In September they attended 
the two day Fire Training School at Fitzwilliam, N.H. which is sponsored 
by the New Hampshire Fire Chiefs Club, this training consisted of breath- 
ing apparatus and flammable liquids fire fighting under actual combat 
conditions. 

The use of training films, available from equipment manufacturers, 
was continued for all members, as well as on duty training sessions for 
members which covered hydraulics, sprinkler operations, pump opera- 
tions and etc. 

RECOMMENDATIONS 

The following subjects are set forth for your thoughts and con- 
sideration. 

1. Construction of a fire training area which would include a 
ladder training tower, a combination smoke house and fire com- 
bat building as well as a pumper test and drafting pit. 

2. Continuation of the study committee for relocation or consolida- 
tion of the sub stations. 

3. Arrange with the New England Fire Insurance Rating Associa- 
tion for completion of the survey started by them in 1964. The 
future of the fire department lies in this report, as well as the 
possibility of a rate change for fne insurance premiums. 

4. The addition of permanent firefighters to complete the table of 
organization shown in the first part of this report. 

5. Adoption of a building code with proper supervision for its en- 
forcement. Included in this code should be areas that provide for 
fire safety and require certain types of fire protection devices, 
depending on square footage and occupancy. 

APPRECIATION 

In the year 1967 the following Call Firefighters retired or resigned. 

Edward J. Antoine Appointed 7-7-41 Retired 9-27-67 

WiUiam H. McArthur, Jr. Appointed 4-16-33 Retired 8-31-67 

87 



Malcolm H. Stevens Appointed 12-2-29 Retired 4-30-67 

Alfred E. Prates Appointed 6-16-41 Resigned 8-18-67 

Collectively these men gave the Tov^n of Cohasset over one hundred 
years of faithful and honorable service. To them I extend the thanks and 
appreciation of the Fire Department. 

In conclusion I would like to extend the thanks of this department 
to the citizens of Cohasset, the Board of Selectmen, the heads and mem- 
bers of all town departments and boards, the call firefighters and the 
permanent officers and men of the department for their cooperation, 
guidance and assistance during the past year.

Each year it is the pleasant duty of the chairman of the board to 
write a few words concerning the operation of the department during 
the past year. I say pleasant duty because with the public health nurses 
running our clinics so well, with our full-time health agent doing the 
lion's share of the work and with our secretary Mr. Rene Chiasson di- 
recting the efforts of the sewer study committee so efficiently, it is most 
pleasant to report that the department of health has run quite smoothly. 

To all our personnel we are most grateful for a job well done, "par- 
ticularly our part time telephone operators in the assessors' office". 

88 



We are looking forward to less complaints and difi&culties with a 
public sewerage disposal system if and when we may have a wide spread 
sewerage system — not only for the peace of mind of the health depart- 
ment, but for the general health of the town.

Casework Report 

Mrs. Frances Wright, Social Service League 

Three of the carried forward cases from 1966 are still active, and 
receiving help with intensive problems — two of an emotional nature, 
and the third a case of physical disability. Four cases have been referred 
to caseworker during 1967; two minor service, now closed, and two in- 
tensive; 1 marriage problem and one problem of emotional illness. One 
of them is carried to 1968 as well as the three still active 1966 cases. 

Dental Clinic 

A report of the Dental Clinic, sponsored by the Board of Health,

REPORT OF THE PERSONNEL BOARD 

The Personnel Board has met monthly throughout the year with 
the purpose of maintaining fair and, hopefully, well-reviewed wage and 
personnel policies for all Town employees. From time to time, requests 
were received from, or opinions rendered to, most of Cohasset's operating 
departments. 

Periodically, there have been efforts to break the wage patterns es- 
tablished by the Board. In 1967, the Town overrode the Board leaving 
pay differentials between the positions of police patrolman, police ser- 
geant, and police chief now believed by the Board to be les than adequate. 

It is hoped that the Town realizes that similar future actions, although 
sure to benefit one group, lead only to dissatisfaction and dissention on the 
parts of many other Town employees. Your Board has studied, compre- 
hensively, relative wage scales for all Town employees and believes its 
recommendations are fair and adequate, considering increases in the cost 
of living, comparable to wages in surroimding towns and in the best in- 
terest of Cohasset.

REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF INSECT PEST CONTROL 

Since the Gypsy Moth is now under control and nearly extinct in 
Massachusetts and several other insects have become troublesome, the 
State of Massachusetts renamed the Moth Department to become the De- 
partment of Insect Pest Control. Among the insects needing control is 
the Elm Leaf Beetle. This is controlled by a spray of Thiodan, a com- 
paratively safe insecticide but very effective. 



Dutch Elm Disease 

D.D.T. the standard material for the control of the Elm Bark Beetle 
the vector of D.E.D. has been forbidden for use in Massachusetts because 
of its dangers to wildlife and the build up of residues in many fish, birds, 
and animals. Methoxychlor, a non-persistent insecticide, but said to be as 
effective as D.D.T. has been used in Cohasset for several years and will 
be continued. 

There were 32 condemned cases of D.E.D. last year, a fairly low 
number. All free falling trees have been cut and the remaining trees to 
be topped should be removed by early spring. 

Poison Ivy 

The control of Poison Ivy was continued so that most areas in town 
are quite safe. 

Respectfully submitted, 
HOWARD BATES 
Superintendent, Insect Pest Control 



REPORT OF CIVIL DEFENSE DIRECTOR 

During the past year much time has been spent in repairing and re- 
conditioning equipment and the Civil Defense telephone has been relocated 
at Fire Headquarters where it now receives 24 hour coverage. 

An updated inventory is being prepared and emphasis during the 
coming year will be placed on the training of personnel. 

I v/ish to thank the Board of Selectmen and the heads of the various 
town departments for their splendid cooperation.

1967 SCHOOL COMMITTEE REPORT 

The Committee is grateful to the voters of the town for approving 
$2,075,000 for a new wing, new library, new gymnasium, and extensive 
alterations at the High School. As work begun in April will not be com- 
plete until the fall of 1968, the High School has had to operate in the 
presence of various building trades, workmen, and contractors' equip- 
ment. The major part of alterations in the existing building were com- 
pleted during the summer and we are already enjoying the benefits of 
new Health rooms, new enlarged Guidance offices, a new Chemistry 
Laboratory, and three new boilers. 

An example of the administration's ingenuity in coping with tempor- 
ary inconveniences was the relocation of the library to the auditorium 
stage. 

At the Joseph Osgood School two new classrooms were obtained by 
alterations to the cafeteria and kitchen. Food for this school is now pre- 
pared in the High School kitchen and transported in special containers. 

93 



Serving is from an altered storeroom and meals are eaten in the auditorium 
on portable tables. Thus, additional teaching space was obtained for 
about $4,000 and the cost of running a kitchen was reduced. 

In January, an agreement was entered into with the towns of Dux- 
bury, Hanover, Hanson, Hingham, Hull, Marshfield, Plymouth, Scituate, 
and the Plymouth-Carver Region for a joint educational project named 
"Project Lighthouse." Under Title III of the Elementary and Secondary 
Education Act of 1965 (Federal P. L. 89-10) the section of the Act 
which deals with innovative approaches to old educational problems or 
creative ideas through new programs, an Operational Grant of $160,000 
was awarded the first year. The purpose of the project is to use the natural 
ecolog}^ and historical advantages of our region for the mutual benefit of 
nine school systems, specially in the areas of Outdoor Science, Language 
Arts, and Special Education. Implementation is through several programs 
of workshops for teachers from the towns involved. 

The trend in education appears to be toward increasing attention of 
the individual student. In spite of increasing numbers this is accomplished 
by various groupings, imaginative scheduling, and numerous special 
teachers. Along with a constant rise in salaries of all school personnel 
(teachers from a minimum of $5100 in 1965 to $6200 in 1968) and in- 
creasing cost of books, supplies, and services, our budget has grown 
faster percentage-wise than the size of our student body. Thus, to main- 
tain continuing quality education, which we feel the townspeople desire, 
will place an even greater burden on our taxpayers. 

We extend our appreciation to Superintendent Ripley for his skill 
in continuing to staff our schools with capable teachers.

REPORT OF THE SUPERESTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 

I hereby submit my twenty-sixth report as Superintendent of the 
Cohasset Public Schools. The year 1967 has been a significant year for 
the school system. For the students in the secondary grades, the authoriza- 
tion for additional building by the annual town meeting relieves the 
crowded conditions and affords new and better facilities for many de- 
partments. Also the coordination between upper elementary and secondary 
divisions has shown a marked improvement. Emphasis has been placed 
upon the refinement of methods to adapt curriculum and pace instruction 
to the individual pupil at all levels. Certainly we must place even more 
emphasis on how to think, how to concentrate, how to organize their 
work, how to analyze problems, and how to think creatively and objec- 
tively. However, this can be accomplished only by a well coordinated 
system operating as a K-12 unit rather than segregated units. In the op- 
erational grant under Public Law 89-10 Title III we have continued co- 
operation with eight neighboring towns. This is known as Project Light- 
house. Several valuable workshops for faculty members in the area of 
outdoor science, utilizing natural resources of the area have been pro- 
vided. Currently our teachers and some students are engaged in research 
on the area's historical background to be integrated into a language 
art's program. Also cooperative measures to better provide for exceptional 
children are in the planning stage. 

Another federally funded program is the Special Counselor under 
a local Title I grant in the amount of $8392. Public Law 864 grants in 
history and science have totaled $1336. 

The faculty remains a stable and hard working group, and the school 
year 1967 recorded a turnover of only 12%. During the past year 35 
staff members enrolled in graduate courses equivalent to 170 semester 
hours. 

I should like to reiterate my invitation for close communication be- 
tween parents and the school. Conferences are welcomed and appoint- 
ments may be arranged. I am gratified by the interest evidenced by the 
large response to our open houses sponsored by the P.T.A. 

The High School graduation exercises held on the Common this 
year met with general approbation. It appears to be a tradition worth es- 
tablishing in this beautiful and significant settine. The class enrolled 60% 
in 4 year colleges, 15% in 2 year colleges, 9% in other institutions for 
special training, 11% to industry, and 5% to the uniformed services. 

At this time I should like to record my appreciation for the valuable 
services of two staff members who retired in June. Mrs. Ruby Fields, 
elementary reading supervisor, retired after 1 9 year*; service. Mr. Theodore 

Finnerty, English teacher in the Junior High grades, retired after 9 years 
of teachmg in Cohasset. 

95 



Again may I express my appreciation for the patient understanding 
and interest of the School Committee members. 

Respectfully submitted, 

WILLIAM RIPLEY, JR. 

Superintendent of Schools

REPORT OF THE 
SOUTH SHORE REGIONAL SCHOOL DISTRICT COMMITTEE 

This has been another most gratifying year. June 1967 marked the 
end of our fifth school year, and the number of job opportunities was 
twice the number of graduates. The pay offered was higher than ever. 
Industry is well aware of the quality of our graduates. 

The Evening Trade Extension Courses and the Manpower Retrain- 
ing Programs were both well attended this year and the graduates were 
well received by the industrial community. 

Our activities were increased again this year by the enlargement of 
our Occupational Preparatory course. This course is conducted in co- 
operation with the school departments of the regional towns. The boys 
receive their academic classroom work in their local high school each 
morning and their shop practice and related classroom work at the regional 
school each afternoon. 

Transportation is provided both ways by the regional school, and 
over fifty boys are presently enrolled in three subject areas. Presently, 
courses are offered in carpentry, auto mechanics, and auto body. 

The principal objective of the Occupational Preparatory Training 
Program is to provide terminal high school students with marketable 
skills. This pilot program is the first of its kind in the country. Graduates 
will receive a certificate from the Regional Vocational School, and a 
diploma from their respective high schools. It is hoped that this new 
program will help to relieve the occupational problems of the high school 
graduates who seek employment rather than continue their schooling. 
An added feature is the fact that many boys have been admitted to the 
higher level regular vocational programs. 

In addition to the four major programs now being operated by the 
school, the facilities are made available to several organizations for in- 
structional purposes during the summer as well as the winter months. 

Thus, for a considerable part of the year, the facilities of the school are 
being used ten to twelve hours per day. It is hoped that in the future we 
can enlarge our activities to serve more of our youth and more of our 
adult residents. 

As has been our policy in the past, the Advisory Boards and Finance 
Committees of all regional towns were invited to attend the School Com- 
mittee budget meetings and to participate in the discussions. This has 
been a most effective arrangement since it allows active participation in 
the discussions and decisions being made. 

The most outstanding innovation this school year is the home build- 
ing project. Boys from appropriate crafts are building a tri-level home 
48 X 26 feet with an attached garage. It is located at the comer of Old 
Town and Dillingham Way in Hanover and should be finished in June 
1968. The owners pay for all materials, plus a small labor charge. Other 

101 



outside projects, such as the field house for storage and athletic activities 
have been completed previously, but this home is the first to be built. 
We hope to build a house each year, and applications and information 
may be had by contacting the school. 

The only regretable aspect of the entire situation at the school is that 
more good average boys are not availing themselves of the outstanding 
opportunities for profitable employment and good citizenship by seeking 
enrollment at this excellent facility. It is hoped that applications from 
Cohasset will increase. 

JOHN A. GEARY 

Cohasset Representative 

South Shore Regional School 
District Committee 



REPORT OF THE SCHOOL FACILITIES COMMITTEE 

Following the 1967 Town Meeting which approved bond issues for 
major additions and alterations to the Cohasset Junior-Senior High School, 
the necessary approval of the state's Emergency Finance Board was ob- 
tained, a contract let with James S. Kelliher, Inc. of Quincy, and con- 
struction started early in April, 1967. 

While work proceeded on the several additions, the contractor con- 
centrated on the alterations to the existing building during the school 
vacation period and these were completed in time for the opening of 
school in September. By the end of 1967 the project, except for site work 
and playing fields, was something over 50% completed. Nearly all of 
the new additions had been closed in, except for the gymnasium walls. 
There remained the installation of plumbing and heating and interior 
finish of the new areas. Work on the site and playing fields will be 
scheduled for the summer. 

The project is considered to be comfortably on schedule with every 
likelihood that it can be occupied as expected in the fall of 1968. 

With the High School project well on its way, the Committee has 
given some preliminary consideration to the possible need for the ac- 
quisition of additional land for future school needs. A meeting has been 
held with the Planning Board and a review made of previous recom- 
mendations for possible school sites, but no decisions have been reached.

Chairman

REPORT OF THE SCHOOL DENTIST 

At the end of 1968 school year, it will be twenty-nine years since I 
was appointed School Dentist for the town of Cohasset. Progress has 
been made, along with many changes in that span of years. School en- 
rollment took a sharp increase; an additional clinic was established in the 
new High School; and after a long and arduous task the water supply in 
Cohasset was finally fluoridated in 1955. 

In that same year the entire dental operation at the High School was 
phased out and moved to the new Deer Hill School. This limited our 
work to the elementary level, since clinic time and increased enrollment 
had to be equalized. Now at both the elementary schools, blackboard 
lectures, film strips and movies, along with chair-side instruction, aug- 
ment regular classroom curriculum. However, the greatest contribution 
clinically has been the unending struggle against rampant decay, which 
has been reduced by filling the grooves and smooth surface breakdown 
areas of many of the childrens' teeth. Since the fluoridation of our water 
supply there has been a noticeable change for the better in the dentition 
of most of the children in the elementary grades — possibly a 50% to 
60% reduction in decay. This public health measure, fluoridation, should 
not be discontinued, as it is safe, healthful, inexpensive and progressive. 

During the twenty-nine years, I have served with two superintendents 
of schools, two school nurses, many school physicians, principals, and 
countless fine teachers, aU of whom were most gracious in helping carry 
out our small contribution toward the development of many a Cohasset 
youngster. 

This school health function receives its funds and is administered 
by our local Board of Health, due to the General Law of the Common- 
wealth forbidding a School Committee to establish a health clinic that 
functions with treatments, and not just advice and first aid. We have 
always worked more closely with the school department, as it should be; 
however, I wish to state that I appreciate the respect and trust placed in 
my hands by the numerous members of the Board of Health over the 
many years. 

This is my last report, since I plan to retire from the position of 
School Dentist in September, 1968. Again, I thank you all. 

The following is an account of the work accomplished in the clinic 
during the period from January 1, 1967 to December 31, 1967.

TOWN ACCOUNTANT'S REPORT 

I herewith present my annual report in accordance with Section 61 
of Chapter 41 of the Tercentenary Edition of the General Laws, for the 
year ending December 31, 1967, showing in detail the appropriations, 
expenditures, and the receipts from each source of income. Also a re- 
capitulation sheet and a balance sheet showing the assets and liabilities 
and trust accounts. 

In accordance with Section 57 of Chapter 41, of the Tercentenary 
Edition of the General Laws, you will find a detailed report of the Town's 
Debt which amounts to $1,640,000.00. Also a complete report of the 
Interest requirement of the Town Debt which amounts to $48,893.25 
during the period of the Town Debt. 

In accordance with Section 53 of the Tercentenary Edition of the 
General Laws, the records of permits and licenses issued by the Selectmen 
and other departments receiving money for the Town or committing bills 
for collection were examined and checked, the reported payments to the 
Town Collector and Town Treasurer being compared with the Treasurer's 
recorded receipts, also the savings bank books and securities representing 
the investment of the several trust funds in the custody of the Town 
Treasurer. 

I certify that during the year, I made an audit of the books and ac- 
counts of the Town Collector and Tax Collector, and the outstanding 
accounts were listed and proved with the respective accounts. 

Also during the year an audit was made of the books and accounts 
of the Cohasset Water Department and the outstanding accounts were 
listed and proved with the respective ledger accounts. 

As this will be the final report that I will make as Town Accountant, 
may I take this opportunity to thank all departments for their sincere 
cooperation over the several years that I have been Town Accountant. 

MALCOLM H. STEVENS 
Town Accountant.
